Answers :

Measuring the voltage outputs without applying a load doesn?t eliminate the adaptor as the problem. You also have to know how may amps it can supply as well.\015\012\015\012To answer you specific question common problems are defective battery, A/C power supply and my favorite?s defective power connector or circuitry inside.\015\012\015\012When you plug in the A/C power adaptor do any of the LEDs light, up? Does anything happen? Also try removing the battery, plugging in the A/C adaptor and try powering up.\015\012\015\012If this doesn?t work please supply answers to the above questions plus any other pertinent information you may have. As always please don?t forget to rate the posting but please wait till after we?ve finished.
